Eighth-grade math teacher Matt LaCorte at Hammond Middle School in Maryland, combined raising funds for an Ethiopian charity with lessons about the needs the charity aims to fill. Through the service-learning project, students raised funds and participated in an Accelerate Ethiopia Fun Run/Walk, which helps pay for cataract surgeries and supports educational programs in the impoverished country. "That's really powerful to me. ... It feels really tremendous that we can help," said eighth-grader Kevin Baker, who made a documentary about cataracts and Ethiopia.
